Dalembert Update

Contrary to what was posted here a couple of weeks ago, it appears that Samuel Dalembert has not yet been fully cleared to play for Canada in the upcoming FIBA Americas Olympic qualifying tournament in Las Vegas in late August. According to the following article from Philly.com by Marc Narducci Dalembert hopes to join Canada team: He has not received confirmation on a role this summer. His citizenship isn't clear Dalembert's citizenship status is still up in the air, although Canadian Sr. Men's national team coach Leo Rautins is optimistic as is Dalembert's agent, both of who are quoted in the article. Canada went 1-4 in their first five games of the summer at the recent Pan-Am Games in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, part of the preparation for the FIBA Americas qualifier in Las Vegas.
